In a Teacup

If you had asked me years ago about drinking tea so passionately when I was in my fifties, I would have laughed at you.

But in a nutshell (or should I say, “in a teacup”)  🙂  . . .

@toatealondon I love to party

I’ve checked out some really great “tea-stuff” on Twitter.






I follow some good tea blogs.


And making homemade chai tea for visitors is one of my favourite things to do.

When I moved to Slovakia in 1996, I quickly learned that I needed to start drinking either coffee, tea, liquor or soft drinks because everywhere I went, I was offered these choices of beverage. I chose tea back then and I’m still drinking it now! I’m very adventurous when it comes to tea flavours so you can pretty much hand me a cup of anything and I’ll give it a try. To be honest, fruity teas are not my favourite but I do have them on hand in my bursting tea basket when someone comes to visit.

I couldn’t possibly drink all the tea that I’ve collected (most of my tea packages are gifts, which are always appreciated) so when someone picks out a tea and really enjoys the flavour, that tea often goes home with her/him. I also have a container of all kinds of interesting tea-drinking paraphernalia, which  seems to be growing over the years.

A few months ago, I started a group called, Chai and Chat, and that’s been a wonderful way to bring three of my favourite things together — tea, multi-aged women and stimulating conversation . . .

. . . and  THAT’S no ordinary tea party!


  1. Oh, Diane. I love this post.
    And I relate to it so well.
    Have a look at this and you’ll see what I mean!

      LOVED your post! I think I would have fit right into that tea party, for sure! We’ll have to make our own, Cynthia! Thanks for sharing such a delicious post!
